“A bloke and a bird, both alike in dignity,
In slummy Shepherds Bush, where we lay our scene…”
This bold piece of spoken word theatre by Matthew Lyon explores the highs and lows of falling in, and inevitably out, of love on the grimy streets of London town. Broken is a bawdy, bolshy ballad exploring humanity's greatest addiction.
Following a critically acclaimed run at The Edinburgh Fringe, Broken runs at the Old Red Lion Theatre in April & May 2018.
Praise for previous productions:
★★★★★ - London Pub Theatres Magazine.
“I was completely seduced by its soaring musicality and delicious smuttiness. As they say - if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and there's nothing broken about this show.”
★★★★ - Breaking the Fourth Wall.
“How would Shakespeare have expressed this?”… he probably wouldn’t have changed a thing. Pretty much everything that’s spoken in Broken is quotable.”
★★★★ - The Reviews Hub.
“The romance and grandeur of Lyon's rhyme, which often borrows exact phrases from Shakespeare, Wordsworth and others, is cleverly offset by the frequent mundanity and ordinariness of the context and language.”
